A delightful stone built detached 'cottage style' property with character, situated in an enviable rural setting with outstanding views across the surrounding countryside. The property is relatively new having been thoughtfully designed by the present owner from an existing dwelling on the site in 1998, now offering versatile accommodation that will clearly appeal to a wide range of buyers. There is the potential for further development of the main building if required subject to any necessary planning permission and consent. In addition, there is a detached stone built garden room which has been granted planning permission for conversion to a Self-Contained One Bedroom Annexe/Holiday Let providing an income source if required. Other benefits include: Oil fired central heating, double glazed windows set within wooden frames, a log burning stove in the sitting room and a bespoke fitted and integrated kitchen with granite work surfaces. In brief, the well presented accommodation comprises on the ground floor: Reception Hall, Cloakroom, Dual Aspect Sitting Room, Family Room, Kitchen/Dining Room, Inner Hallway with separate staircase leading to an Attic Room/Occasional Bedroom above the garage. On the First Floor: Landing, Master Bedroom with En Suite Shower Room, 2 Further Bedrooms and Family Bathroom. Outside, the property is approached by a gated stone chipped driveway providing parking for several vehicles which in turn leads to the Double Garage. The mature gardens surround the property on all four sides and offer a good degree of privacy and sunshine. This is without doubt a unique opportunity as properties rarely become available in this location and so early viewing is advised.
